Default 1 year

I bought my Bonneville a year ago today. At the time I was just looking for a reliable, inexpensive car and was rushed to get it before college started. I remember the decision was between a 98 Dodge Stratus, or the Bonneville. I had never heard of a Bonneville and the thought of being able to declare "I drive a Dodge Stratus!" (SNL) was sort of appealing, but in the end I went with the better looking, more comfortable, better riding, better optioned car (even though it had about 40K more miles, haha). Since then I've grown very attached to my car, it always gets me to where I need to go...

Congrats on the first year! I have had mine just over a year myself. And, as stated, Bonnie definitely find you. Mine certainly did!

haha I don't have a ton of pictures of my car and I wanted to use one that hadn't been posted before so it ended up being the one with my girlfriend in it.

Nice car! Too bad it'* that nice shiny black color and not the most popular white....lol.

The Bonneville is one of those rare large sedans that was bought by the old folks to get that smooth large car ride, but retains the lasting style that attracts younger drivers, then keeps them...
